Gender (Gaming)

I wonder if people will reject playing as and inhabiting a body of a different gender than they are. For a group of people who throw fits when a female soldier is on a cover or a woman points out misogyny in games, it seems like a lot to ask to have them be a woman while playing in VR.

Maybe they'll finally understand gender dysphoria?

I hope Valve doesn't take the shitty way out and not have your body be represented.

Do you mean specifically in VR? Because I’ve been playing as female characters for decades. I also have never seen anyone complain about female soldiers on the cover of games, outside the lone case of a game that took place during WWI, where the complaint was due to historical inaccuracy, not misogyny.
